Chakras and Emotional Intelligence

YOMEI is all about using elements of yoga and mindfulness to help us enhance our Emotional Intelligence (EI). The chakra system is often associated with those who practice yoga and mindfulness (or meditation) on a regular basis. In staying true to YOMEI brand, this workshop will help you to understand the relationship between your chakras and your EI skills as you learn about the chakra system.

Emotional Intelligence (EI) is a set of skills we all have that are regularly developed to enhance our ability to (1) accurately know ourselves in terms of personal strengths and weaknesses, (2) establish and maintain effective and healthy relationships, (3) get along and work productively with others, and (4) deal effectively and healthily with the demands and pressures of daily living. EI development is a continuous and lifelong process of developing and applying specific skills. Similarly, each chakra is associated with special aspects of human awareness. Blockages in the chakras can cause problems on the mental – spiritual – emotional – physical realms.

EI skills include four categories of interpersonal skills, intrapersonal skills, Leadership skills, and Self-Management. Each category includes sub-skills that are specific to the category they fall under. Every EI skill is developed and enhanced through the most powerful skill we have…. Self Awareness!


  • Assertion
  • Self Esteem
  • Stress Management


  • Comfort
  • Empathy
  • Decision Making
  • Leadership (overall)


  • Drive Strength
  • Time Management
  • Commitment Ethic
  • Change Orientation

You will learn more about each skill as they are introduced by the chakra that compliments them. Some skills are complimented by one or more chakra, so you may see it repeated throughout the course. What is important is that you are able to use your self-awareness to apply what you learned to experience the benefits.

Remember that EI skills fall under different categories, but the skills still remain separate for the sake of the chakra relationship.  As you move through the lessons you will learn about the skills (with the category in parenthesis) as they relate to the chakras.
